It looks like this isn't going to work. I can't seem to get the
directory structures to work out in the final checked-out versions the
way I want them.

Guess I'll have to point /tags/beta at /trunk@whatever
and/tags/production at /trunk@whatever_else. Not as streamlined as
I'd hoped, but I think it'll still work.
